The Ring pictured above and below is an exquisite Hybrid with a Smokey Quartz from O'Brien's Creek, Queensland, Australia, cut to perfection by Bespoke Gems. Set in 18K Yellow Gold and 18K White Gold, with a sprinkling of Champagne Diamonds on the one side, and a row of Cognac Diamonds. This is my latest piece available at Courtesy of the Artist.

Since moving to Australia in April 2016, I couldn't help but fall in love with the incredible colours of Australian Sapphires. Having had my work on display at Courtesy of The Artist for a while, they asked me if I would like to work with these incredible gems of nature to create a series exclusively for them.

And so 'A Composition in Australian Sapphire' was created.

Being inspired by the natural shape, colour and tones of the stones, I used these aesthetics to create the clusters or 'compositions' of these luxury heirloom pieces. They are all set in 18ct Gold, as the contrast of green and blue and Yellow Gold has been something that has intrigued me for a while now. 

If you're ever in Sydney, pop in to Courtesy of the Artist on level 2 of the Strand Arcade on George Street to see them in all their glory.
